Since MLR 2017 came into force in June 2017, regulatory compliance has become more challenging because of new requirements and changes to existing obligations. We provide compliance support to a range of firms, with a special emphasis on those organisations for whom financial crime is especially complex and demanding.
These include foreign-owned, mid-sized and challenger Banks, Payment Services firms and anyone working with e-Money. We are also experts in the Cryptocurrency sector, which will fall under the new regulations in the UK when MLD5 is introduced, most likely, in 2019.
